I don't think they are connected. Winston G Broadbent was probably from New Zealand as all his publications appear to have been produced in Paeroa, NZ (usually by the Eldon Press) in the 1960s and 70s. Timothy Stunt

Further to my posting yesterday, The New Zealand Auckland Star (12 June 1930) recorded that Winston G Broadbent was admitted as a solicitor in the Supreme Court by Mr Justice Ostler on the motion of Mr J. J. Sullivan. Timothy

Dad was born 28/2/08 so was 22 years 3 months when admitted to the bar. He used to claim that he was the youngest practicing solicitor in NZ. He also claimed a distant relationship with E H Broadbent, but it was quite distant.

Thanks Marsden .. interesting to know there was a link to E.H.B., even if distant. I don't know if you have a suitable photo of him we could put up here?

This valuable article contains an interesting reference to W G Broadbent. His useful pamphlet on Tongues is available for download on various internet sites. Since I can't find a facsimile pdf version of the original pamphlet, one has to be cautious lest the uploaded versions have been altered in some way.

I've been reading WG Broadbents works for about 30 years now and I still enjoy his precision in sound doctrine
